More guns for police Armed incidents on the increase „„ By Andrew King FRONTLINE POLICE in Canterbury will have more weaponry from Saturday to deal with dangerous incidents. The number of rifles and handguns will increase in police vehicles to give officers more fire power. The initiative is being rolled out across New Zealand in response to the increasing number of armed incidents. It comes at a time when the Police Association – the police officers’ union – released a 30-page document last week supporting the general arming of police. The NZ Police don’t support the general arming. The report has been distributed to political parties to let them know of rank and file police views on arming. Police Association president Chris Cahill said yesterday the increase in criminals confronting officers with firearms means police should be armed all the time. “If there isn’t something done around the proliferation of firearms in the hands of criminals, then it is inevitable police will have to carry firearms on them (at all times) as well,” he said. The increase in the number of guns available to frontline police from Saturday was an indica-

tion full general arming like in Australia could be a reality in the future, he said. Last year, The Star revealed firearms were being stolen to order in Canterbury and falling into the hands of hardened criminals. Handguns were being sold for $1000 on the black market. Police are now regularly finding firearms in vehicles they stop. But police national manager of response and operation, Superintendent Chris Scahill, yesterday said the current environment does not support officers being armed. “Who knows what the future will hold, but right now we don’t feel there is a need. But like anything, we will continue to review and assess the environment and society’s expectations,” he said. Replied Mr Cahill: “We will continue to lobby for officers to carry firearms all the time,” he said. Superintendent Scahill said the initiative to increase the amount of weaponry was based around having more police available to deal with armed incidents. “The whole idea is to increase the number of sworn staff who can respond to armed scenarios. Then we needed to increase the number of weapons available to those officers,” he said. •Turn to page 3


MORE GUNS: Each frontline officer will have access to a Glock 17 pistol and Bushmaster XM15 M4A3 Patrolman. Officers like those above could be armed full-time in the future.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK IT’S NO surprise police are now increasing the amount of fire power they have (see page 1). The number of people carrying firearms has increased dramatically in recent years, and with that comes a huge danger to both the public and the police. In years gone by there was the odd shoot-out between the gangs, and those who were robbing banks would use guns. But now with the huge proliferation of drugs, particularly meth, and the violence that goes with it among those who wheel and deal in that industry, having a gun handy is fairly important. It could save your life if someone is coming through the door to rip you off, and of course if you are going to steal drugs off someone else you’ll likely need a gun to do it. Otherwise you’ll get shot. So no surprises the police are arming up. It’s a crazy world out there. – Barry Clarke

This week In history saw Canterbury’s first armed robbery. On June 27, 1846, three men held up the Greenwood brothers’ farm at Purau. On the same day in 1964, The Beatles visited, drawing large crowds. On June 30, 1849, the New Zealand Company bought the remaining French interests at Akaroa from the Nanto-Bordelaise Company. And on July 1, 1935, evening papers the Star and Sun merged to become the Star Sun. The merger ended a sixyear newspaper war – one of the longest and most bitter in New Zealand’s history. The “peace” agreement between the three companies concerned also saw the demise of the Christchurch Times, once the Lyttelton Times, which was the oldest daily paper in the country.

Look out road cones. The ‘Cone Ranger’ initiative has been launched by the Christchurch Transport Operations Centre to collect stray cones to tidy up the city’s streets and make them safer to navigate. CTOC manager Ryan Cooney said some contractors were using cones and signs inappropriately, such as using them to book spaces for deliveries. On their first day, the cone rangers collected 280 redundant cones, 16 signs, two fences, two pedestrian ramps and a barrier.

Appeal to help hero dog „„ By Amy Wiggins PIP CLARK’S dog saved her from a knife-wielding intruder who broke into her home, now he’s sick and she’s doing everything she can to save him. Just over a year ago Ms Clark, 32, was getting ready for work when she found a man inside her Dallington home. Charlie, her 5-year-old standard poodle, was upstairs when she came across the intruder in the ground floor of her house on November 25, 2015. “He started punching me and I was in shock and he went to punch me again but he actually had a knife. He tried to bring it down on my neck but I put my arm up so he cut my arm quite bad. I screamed and that’s when Charlie heard and came down and went for the guy.” When the intruder saw the black dog racing toward him, teeth bared, he ran out the door, jumped the fence and disappeared, she said. “He saved my life.” She said police never found the intruder. After the attack, she decided to speak out when a computer generated sketch was released of a similar-looking man who tried to abduct a woman at Selwyn’s Coes Ford in December. Since the attack, Charlie had

become anxious and started eating household objects when she wasn’t home. He became sick a couple of weeks ago. Earlier this week, he started vomiting, developed diarrhoea

and started defecating blood. The vet at Papanui Pet Doctors did x-rays and scans and found a blockage in his intestine so operated on him yesterday. They found bits of towel

blocking his intestines, which they removed. They expected him to fully recover, but because Ms Clark can only work part time because of serious organ problems, she’s struggling to afford Charlie’s treatment. She believed it would cost about $5000. She has used her savings, sold some of her jewellery and borrowed money from family but has still come up short. The vet says she can pay it off over time, but she is appealing for donations on Givealittle to pay a deposit. “Charlie came into my life when I thought I couldn’t survive my severe injuries any longer. When the treatment was excruciatingly painful he was always there for cuddles and helped me through,” she said. In 2013, Ms Clark was walking Charlie in Burwood Park when he was attacked by a staffordshire bull terrier. Eight people playing tennis at Burwood Tennis Club ran over, pulled the dog off Charlie and formed a circle to keep it from getting at him again. •To donate towards Charlie’s vet bill, visit cause/pipandcharlie – NZ Herald

Police armed with more guns • From page 1 “This allows any response officer on duty to be able to have access to those weapons,” he said. Canterbury-based Inspector Bryan Buck said: “Criminals have more access than ever to firearms and we need to be able to deal with situations like that safely for the staff involved and the public.

“This enables us to react quickly to worst-case scenarios.” Officers have been undergoing training in the past 12 months to prepare for the increased number of firearms they will soon have, he said. Police have dealt with a number of serious armed incidents in recent times. In February Murray James Allan was shot in the face after

he pointed a blank firing pistol at police in Woolston. Douglas Anderson Roake recently pleaded guilty to six armed robberies of bars and the shooting of two women near Rolleston on April 19. A task force was formed to catch Roake, who amassed more than $115,000 in his one-man crime wave. He will be sentenced on August 23.

ISAAC THEATRE ROYAL CHRISTCHURCH 25th July- 10am, 12pm & 3pm 26th july - 10am & 12pm

Since August 2016 nine bars have been robbed at gunpoint, while dairies, petrol stations and bottle stores have been the targets of armed robberies also. The Woolston Night ‘n Day has been robbed 10 times since September 2016. The Police Association believes the time is right to have all officers carrying firearms, but police say it is not needed.

In Brief WET CONCRETE VICTIM A 46-year-old man suffered serious injuries on Monday after falling in freshly poured concrete in Prebbleton. He was pouring concrete when the incident happened at about 11am. ROBBERY YOUTHS CHARGED Four youths have been charged with the robbery of Challenge Opawa on June 15. The masked, hammer-wielding youths took more than $6000 in cash and tobacco. Police arrested two of the four suspects, aged 14 and 15, last week before picking the other two, aged 15 and 16, up this week. All four have been charged with aggravated robbery and will appear in the youth court. $100K DONATION FOR PARK A mystery $100,000 donation could see the upgrade of Scarborough Park in Sumner fast-tracked. The city council had pushed the park’s revamp back until 2019/2020 due to a lack of funding. However, it now plans to reinstate funding as long as it receives the private donation in the first quarter of 2017/2018. The city council would not release the name of the private donor. TAYLER RECOVERING Former Commonwealth Games 10,000m gold medallist Dick Tayler is making good progress from a heart-related medical incident. Tayler, 68, was admitted to Rotorua Hospital last week. His friend Paul Allison said he was “on the road to recovery.” Tayler, who lived in Christchurch for many years after winning gold at the 1974 games, now lives in Waikouaiti. He was on a two-week tour following the British and Irish Lions when the medical incident occurred. LINWOOD COLLEGE MOVE Linwood College will temporarily shift to the Avonside Girls’ High School site while the college is rebuilt. It will move in term 2, 2019, after Avonside Girls’ High has moved to its new school site at QE II with Shirley Boys’ High School. Linwood College’s rebuild is due to be completed at the end of 2020.

News Speeding drink driver caught twice before

„„ By Andrew King A MAN caught driving 164km/h while four times the legal limit in May has been caught drink driving before. Brett John Owen, 41, recorded 1025mcg/L after he was pulled over for speeding on May 20 near Motukarara at about 5pm.​ The legal limit is 250mcg/L. Yesterday in district court he pleaded guilty to driving with excess breath alcohol and driving at excessive speed. He was sentenced to six months loss of licence, fined $1800 plus court costs and sentenced to nine months supervision. His lawyer applied for him to have an alcohol interlock device fitted to his car after the six months suspension, which the judge granted. It will be fitted for 12 months. He had previously been convicted twice for drink-driving, most recently in September 2013, where he recorded 1214mcg/L. When asked what his excuse for driving so recklessly, Owen said: “I just put my foot down.” Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said it was one of the highest readings he could remember. “It is complete stupidity,” he said

Scott statue repair to begin WORK IS about to begin to repair the statue of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott. The statue was rocked from its plinth in Oxford Tce during the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The 100-year-old statue commemorates Scott and the men who perished with him on the return journey from the South Pole in 1912. Carved in marble by Scott’s widow Kathleen, it is considered of national and international importance. When it fell, the 2.5-tonne statue broke unevenly at the ankles, making the repair technically difficult. A team of experts, including a structural engineer and a sculptor, has researched, developed and tested a repair strategy that involves threading carbon fibre rods through the legs to strengthen them and installing a form of base isolation in the plinth. This week the statue was taken out of storage, hoisted high in the air and gradually lowered head-first into a specially constructed frame that will support it while the repair work

SET TO START: The Scott statue was taken out of storage this week and repair work to get under way.

is carried out. The statue will be suspended within the frame and packed in sand to hold it steady. The legs will protrude from the top so that the repair work can be

done. City council head of parks, Andrew Rutledge, said a lot of work had gone into getting the repair project to this stage. “The testing was very

successful. We’ve done everything we possibly can to minimise the risk of damaging the statue further.” He said those working on the statue were mindful that although the repair method has been tested using the same type of marble, it was possible that the statue, which has many tiny fissures running through the stone, may react differently during the drilling. “There is still a small chance, in spite of our best efforts, that we won’t be able to complete the repair,” Mr Rutledge said. Mayor Lianne Dalziel said the statue of Scott was special, not only because it was carved by Scott’s widow, but because it was a “tangible link back to that heroic age of Antarctic exploration.” Before the earthquake, the statue had been a place of reflection for many people with links to Antarctica, and Ms Dalziel said she was looking forward to it being back on its plinth. “All going well, we will be unveiling the statue at the start of the 2017 Antarctic Season, in early October.”

David East: I was ‘persecuted’ City councillor speaks out over controversial directors’ fees „„ By Bridget Rutherford CITY councillor David East says he was “persecuted” over his controversial decision to keep his directors’ fees. Speaking to the media for the first time, Cr East told The Star his stand to keep more than $20,000 in directors’ fees ultimately cost him another term on Transwaste when he was re-elected late last year. Cr East (right) and former city councillor Ali Jones were criticised when they refused to donate their directors’ fees to charity last term, while others gave theirs to the Mayor’s Welfare Fund and Imagination Station. The fees come on top of their salaries, which increased to $100,699 last year. “When it came to the

beginning of this term, I was just excluded from retaining that director’s position purely on the basis on my stand on the previous term,” Cr East said. Only Christchurch City Holdings councillor directors have to donate their fees, but there is no obligation for Transwaste. “They had every opportunity in the last few years to amend that and chose not to and in the end just chose to persecute me by excluding me from consideration and making appointments on a political basis and not giving

any consideration to the skill and experience,” Cr East said. Cr East was one of four councillors who applied for the three Canterbury Regional Landfill Joint Committee positions. At an April meeting, Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner moved for councillors Pauline Cotter, Mike Davidson and Glenn Livingstone to be appointed onto it. From there a Transwaste director would be chosen. Cr East said he was uncomfortable about the voting process. Mayor Lianne Dalziel

apologised to Cr East and asked the voting be deferred. “I’m feeling very concerned about that and I would like to take some time to reflect on it,” Ms Dalziel said at the meeting. At a later meeting, councillors unanimously voted the three recommended councillors be appointed to the committee. Cr Aaron Keown abstained. Cr Turner told The Star Cr East wasn’t “persecuted”. He recommended the three councillors because they were best placed for the job and it linked with their council committees, he said. “The directors’ fees didn’t form any part of that discussion.” He said that was “largely irrelevant” as the city council was preparing a new policy on the issue, to be voted on next month. Cr East said councillor directors were expected to “do it for nothing and take all the liability”. “We have a left-leaning Labour-type governance structure in council and it’s their policy and that’s what I have to live with. It’s a crazy philosophy but that’s the way they think.”


Wagner to meet with councillors „„ By Bridget Rutherford NICKY WAGNER will meet with city councillors tomorrow, more than two months after she took over the role. The Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration said it would be the first of many official meetings they would have together. It comes after The Star reported city councillors were frustrated they hadn’t met with Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner. They wanted to improve on the communication the city council had with Mrs Wagner’s predecessor Gerry Brownlee. Mrs Wagner said they would be able to ask questions and discuss particular issues. She met weekly with Mayor Lianne Dalziel, and spoke a lot with councillors, but this was their first official meeting, she said. Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman, MP Megan Woods, said she was pleased the meeting was scheduled, but disappointed it had not been earlier. • Columns, p15, 16, 17

Quake-damaged hospital buildings may be kept

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart EARTHQUAKE-damaged Christchurch Hospital buildings, which were set for demolition even before the earthquakes, may now be repaired and kept running. In 2009, it was announced the Riverside building at the hospital would be demolished, and the Parkside building refurbished. Now, Canterbury District Health Board members say the Government-appointed Hospital Redevelopment Partnership Group, which is responsible for the hospital rebuild, is looking at keeping most of the buildings. HRPG chairman Evan Davies would not answer questions from The Star about the buildings, referring questions to the Ministry of Health. A Ministry of Health spokeswoman said she could not answer questions about the future of the buildings, because a business case was being done but no decisions had been made. But board member Aaron Keown said he was told in a board update that the HRPG was looking at rebuilding half of the Riverside building and keeping the other half, and was also

looking at repairing, rather than replacing Parkside. Both buildings were built in the 1980s. Mr Keown said they would be expensive to maintain and less safe than a new building, even with repairs. “Just because you repair a building and spend a lot of money it doesn’t reset the button on its life, because even most new buildings only have a 50 year lifespan,” he said. Fellow board member Andrew Dickerson said the ongoing costs of the work would fall on the community, yet the decision about the building was out of their hands. “I continue to believe that the CDHB should lead this, I believe the HRPG model is flawed. Because although we are not leading it, ultimately we are responsible for it, and we will have to deal with the results of it for the next 40 years,” he said.

$25m-plus spent on properties for projects „„ By Bridget Rutherford MORE THAN $25 million has been spent on buying properties for cycleways, roading projects and flood remediation in the last two years. Figures released under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act show since November 2015, the city council has bought 42 properties and pieces of land, costing $25.1 million. Two of the latest purchases, finalised last month, were properties in Somerfield that needed to be bought to make way for the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway. The $915,000 purchase of the properties, on Roker and Barrington Sts, was contentious as the owners were not keen to sell. It spent just over $2 million buying land parcels and properties as part of the Northern Arterial project. They included some on Winters Rd, and others on Cranford St and Innes Rd to make room for Cranford St to

become four-laned as part of the work. Some properties were bought for flood remediation plans for the upper Heathcote storage project, the Styx stormwater management plan, and Bells Creek. On top of that 13 houses and properties were bought in Flockton Basin at a cost of $3 million. Some were bought so the property could be used for

the Dudley Creek Flood Remediation Scheme. Seven were properties the city council had to buy because they could not be protected from flooding, even after the $48 million scheme is completed. Two street frontages along Lincoln Rd were bought last month for its road widening project, costing $24,240. From 2011 to November 2015, the city council spent $65.1 million on property purchases.

Golden anniversary for jewellers „„ By Sarla Donovan ANDREW KELSO is fascinated by jewellery. The 45-year-old took over Westende Jewellers from his father Roger in 2013, but he’s worked in the business for 30 years, starting as a youngster doing engraving work after school. He loves seeing the hallmarks on a ring or bracelet, telling where and when it was made. Vintage and antique pieces have become an increasingly important part of the business, a way to differentiate from massproduced chain stores. Westende celebrate their 50th anniversary this year and Mr Kelso says helping customers is still one of the most fulfilling parts of the business. “A lady we helped recently had developed arthritis in her hands and had to cut her rings off but they meant a lot to her, so we made a bangle and set her stones into it,” he said. “There’s nothing more satisfying than a remake; (it might be) helping a couple with their engagement or wedding bands, sourcing stones – just seeing a client’s dream become a reality.” Mr Kelso’s father was a police

Dealing in vintage goods means they have to take precautions, always ask for identification and hold the pieces for a period of time. “If there’s any reason staff are suspicious, they’ll let police know. Once we made a specific time for a guy selling jewellery to come back and the police were here waiting for him – took him away for a wee chat.” Fashions come and go in jewellery, but Mr Kelso assures me diamonds are still a girl’s best friend. “If it’s an engagement ring, it’s generally a diamond. They still far outsell any other gemstone. Sapphires would be second and rubies are also popular at the moment.”

Family’s pet sheep killed in attack „„ By Andrew King “THEY’RE A pack of thieving pigs.” That’s the view of angry Little River builder, Danny Bulman, who woke on Saturday to find three of his family’s pet sheep had been slaughtered for meat and the lambs inside them discarded on the ground. About 20 of the defenceless animals had been grazing in the stockyards next to the Banks Peninsula Rugby Club near the corner of State Highway 75 and Western Valley Rd. Mr Bulman said all three were pregnant with twins, so now not only has he lost three pets, he has lost six future pets as well. “I would love to catch the bastards,” Mr Bulman said. It’s believed that the killing happened over Friday night or early Saturday morning, police said. Senior Constable Tim Johnston said if anyone has any information they can phone 363 7400 and ask to be put through to the Akaroa Police Station.

News Building a safer society Today The Star launches a series on the work police in Canterbury are doing on crime prevention. It will run weekly covering a wide range of topics as police head off trouble before it starts. Gabrielle Stuart reports on family harm IT IS not often you will see a police officer cry. But sitting in a small, white-painted meeting room, talking about the cycle of family harm and the passion he has seen his team pour into turning it around, Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Cottam gets misty-eyed and his voice becomes a bit huskier. “I haven’t seen a better cause in 27 years in police than this. For myself and my team, everyone joined the police to make a difference, and this is what makes it worthwhile: Working in prevention,” he said. “I get teared-up talking about it, because that’s the impact this has.” The problem is nothing new: Over those 27 years, he has seen many bruises caused by family violence. In the past year alone, his team has dealt with 9125 family harm episodes in Christchurch – and they believe about four times that amount could go unreported. Each incident becomes part of the family violence cycle, which goes back decades. The incident. The victim. The perpetrator. The agencies they are referred to, the reports written, the court appearances. The risk of re-offending judged and categorised. The victims who go back to a relationship, even after the violence. The perpetrators who have been victims themselves.

Family violence numbers

•9125 family violence episodes have been recorded in Christchurch in the past year •3779 of those were violence between partners •2413 were violence between ex-partners •1751 were violence between parent and child •430 were violence between siblings •4596 Christchurch children have been involved in an episode in the past year •1574 of those children have been involved in more than one episode

And the children caught in the middle – 4596 Christchurch children in the past year alone. Detective Senior Sergeant Cottam said most perpetrators he dealt with had been victims in their past. Many children exposed to violence could grow up to continue it, unless something was done, he said. So how do you change a cycle? It was almost exactly a year ago, on July 4, the Integrated Safety Response programme was started as a pilot in Christchurch, Selwyn and the Waimakariri districts. There were three things it aimed to do differently. The first was helping families experiencing violence with the other needs and problems they were facing – like housing, finding a job, or something as simple as getting a driver’s licence.

That could remove some of the stress the family was under, making it easier for them to focus on addressing the violence and making difficult decisions around it. It could also build trust, as the families realised the police and agencies working with them were genuinely there to help, he said. The second was that they worked with the whole family – both victims and perpetrators – to help them change and develop strategies to stop the problems. The third was bringing all the services and agencies working with families together to work as a team. Every morning at 10.30, people from each agency involved gather at the police station for a ‘safety assessment’ meeting – they call it SAM – to discuss things that have come up over

the past 24 hours. As well as police, the meetings included Ministry for Vulnerable Children, health, corrections and iwi representatives, while family violence services and several other Government departments were also involved in the network. For each incident, any future risk to the victims would be discussed, and a lead agency would be assigned to work with the family. There would usually be about 25 cases to discuss, so the meetings could sometimes take several hours, he said. With everyone there at the meeting, they could share any information relevant to the case

– like truancy records, previous convictions, a lot of previous injuries that might point to a history of violence, or work that an agency had done with the family in the past. He said people’s privacy was carefully weighed against the ultimate goal: To save lives and prevent serious harm. “It could be that someone was caught shoplifting food for their family, and that could be relevant. But if it’s not, that won’t be shared,” he said. “It’s particularly relevant in child abuse cases, because the child doesn’t have a voice.” Integrated Safety Response executive manager Leanne McSkimming said the help families needed could vary a lot. While some needed to go to a safe house, others refused to leave or were better off at home, so the goal was then to find ways to keep them safe there, she said. Some wanted to leave relationships, and others did not. “I’ve seen a lot of our high-risk victims immediately go back to the perpetrator,” she said. That was often because a couple had children together, or because they saw the things done to them as normal, she said. • Turn to page 12

‘Change one perpetrator, and how many victims do you prevent? If one life is saved, that makes it worthwhile.’ – Police

• From page 10 One family she had dealt with faced repeated violence, and were classed at high-risk of it happening again. “But the most stressful thing for them was actually housing, because they were homeless,” she said. Once they were in a home and that pressure was gone, they were able to focus on preventing the violence, she said. Ms McSkimming said three in four perpetrators in Christchurch were male, and 88 per cent were European. She said they were working to encourage people to engage with police, especially in ethnic communities and in cases of elder abuse, which she believed were under-reported. “The older generation had that attitude of we don’t talk about it, we don’t report it,” she said. The trial has been funded for three years until June 2019. Ms McSkimming said the ultimate successes would be difficult to measure: Trust built, violence reduced, and the long-term cycle of violence stopped. She said people they had worked with were more likely to call police themselves after another incident, which she considered a success. But that could mean the official figures around violence will be increasing, rather than dropping, over the trial. So to judge whether the trial was successful, they would look at statistics around convictions, serious injuries and deaths from

violence, and the outcomes for families involved. For Detective Senior Sergeant Cottam, it was a personal experience early in his career that convinced him that the idea – working to prevent crime, rather than just respond to it – would work. He was interviewing a young woman who had been arrested for a string of thefts, burglaries and breaking into cars. “I sat across from her and said: “What do you want from your life?”” The woman said she didn’t want to be a criminal, and her goal was to get a job and have a family – but she couldn’t afford the training course she wanted to do, he said. “We spoke to WINZ and got her in the course. To my knowledge, she never offended again,” he said. He said that was not something that was encouraged within police at the time, as the focus was the frontline policing work. But the difference he was able to make had stayed with him. “To do that is personally more satisfying that arresting someone for murder, because it means preventing a whole lot of future crimes and victims. Arresting someone for murder does keep society safe, but it is almost too late,” he said. Being able to turn someone’s life around was the ultimate aim: The “nirvana”, he said. “Change one perpetrator, and how many victims do you prevent? If one life is saved, that makes it worthwhile.”

Living with isolation and a violent partner „„ By Gabrielle Stuart IT WAS a normal Wednesday morning in March when Amelia’s* life changed. The 20-year-old was at home, rushing to get her daughter ready for kindy before she headed off to a course – dressed up especially nicely in preparation for job interviews. But when her then-boyfriend saw her dressed up, he ordered her to wash her make-up off, and refused to let her leave the house until she did. They were arguing in the kitchen, when he punched her in the stomach. “It winded me and I fell on the ground and he started kicking me,” she said. She had been with her boyfriend on and off for almost four years. Until then, he had threatened her and thrown things at her, but never hit her – instead he had punched the doors in their home to pieces when angry, she said. She remembered screaming for someone to help her as she lay on the floor, and hearing her daughter nearby screaming at him to stop. He stopped and left the room, and she tried to leave – but he followed her and tried to strangle her. She kicked him and fought him off, grabbed her daughter, and ran from the house. He followed them, yelling at her, dressed in just his pants, without a shirt or shoes. At that point the police arrived, called by a neighbour or passerby. If it wasn’t for the stranger calling police, she believed she would have stayed with her boyfriend, and would not have asked for help. Amelia had moved to

SUPPORT: Since Amelia was attacked by her ex-boyfriend in March, Constable Rebecca French has worked personally with her through each meeting and milestone. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

That was where she met Constable Rebecca French from the police family harm team. At the time, she didn’t want to talk about what happened, didn’t want to go into a safehouse, and just wanted life to go back to normal – but she said the police officers weren’t “in your face”. “They asked me if I needed help, but they wouldn’t force me to take it,” she said. Over the next few months, she said Constable French was

regularly in touch. Amelia was struggling to pay rent, and she had no license to drive her daughter around. Constable French set her up with driving lessons through Operation Graduate, and helped with clothing for job interviews through charity Dress For Success – even coming to the appointment to support her and give fashion advice.

The support helped her make the decision to leave her exboyfriend, for her own sake and her daughter’s, Amelia said. “Because the violence wasn’t happening to (my daughter), I didn’t think it affected her, but it does,” she said. She said it was important family, friends and neighbours called the police if they saw someone being abused – because she may not have asked for help herself. “People need to know there is only one way they’re going to get help: If they help themselves,” she said. * Not her real name.

Christchurch from the North Island to be with him, so was isolated from family and friends when he began to be more controlling. “I was getting lonely, so I depended a lot more on him,” she said. She made a statement to police and the next day was asked to come in to have photographs of her bruises taken.

We have established weekly meetings with each other, joint monthly meetings with Regenerate Christchurch, and agreed to receive joint advice from city council staff and officials from the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet on certain issues. This means we are aware of the range of advice and any differences that might occur from time to time. The minister and I have started what will be regular joint public engagement opportunities to keep people up-to-date with the rebuild (and now the regeneration process), as well as responding to questions people have.

Viewpoint South Frame progress sign of ‘strong’ building sector WATER balloons, bicycles, poetry, pop-up tearooms – the opening of the Mollett St block of the South Frame this week was a real celebration. The area includes new laneways, people-friendly public spaces and New Zealand’s first ‘raining poetry’ installation. A Promise, written by Burnside High School student Samantha Jory-Smart, is stencilled onto the ground using an invisible spray and only reveals itself when wet. The day was chilly but fine so Samantha and I had the honour of revealing her poem for the first time using watering cans. Matai Common – a public gathering space within this section of the frame – is connected to St Asaph and Tuam Sts by the new Te Puhoe and Sugarloaf lanes. With 5m-high green screens, plantings and seating, this area is set to become an inner city oasis. A prominent feature of the South Frame is the Greenway – an east to west pedestrian and cycling corridor. But don’t bike too fast or you’ll miss intricate features that make this space uniquely Christchurch, like the illuminated pounamu inserts in the paving. Construction is expected to be

Nicky Wagner completed in 2019. Projects like the South Frame are contributing to strong ongoing building activity throughout the city. The latest Greater Christchurch Dashboard – Construction Activity focuses on residential and nonresidential building activity since the quakes. The data shows the value of non-residential consents issued in the March 2017 quarter was $251 million, compared to $180 million in the same quarter in 2016. The value of building activity in the March 2017 quarter was in excess of $1 billion. Overall, the level of construction activity isn’t quite what it was two years ago when quakerelated building consents were at their peak, but the numbers are still steady. Continued development in the central city and wider Christchurch area means economic growth and, importantly, jobs.

He Toki was set up after the earthquakes by Te Rūnanga o NgāiTahu, in partnership with Ara and Hawkins, to upskill Maori for leadership positions in construction. “The tutors, they help the students, and He Toki supports you really well financially. I was planning to leave at the end of stage 1, because I didn’t know if it was right for me, but I stayed on, and to come out and get a job is so satisfying,” he said. Solomon went on to complete all three stages of training for the NZ Certificate in Carpentry. The He Toki programme incorporates work placements, and Solomon completed his placement with PJ Woods, which then led him to a fulltime job. He Toki maintains strong links with industry employers, who support the programme.

“The course helps because that’s what bosses are looking for – the knowledge and skills for the worksite.” The initiative incorporates a “Work Readiness Passport” designed by employers so that students know what to expect at work. “The site safe card, you definitely need one to get on site, and the licences to use the power tools means you are not just going out and it’s the first time you use the tool,” he said. “He Toki was a really good programme and it definitely did help me out a lot.” Since being established in 2011, He Toki has expanded beyond trades into new areas such as cookery, horticulture, health and wellbeing.

Nicki Cartlidge – At the moment I’m indifferent to how they look (too busy to see while getting cut up by lousy drivers negotiating SH1 roadworks!) Surely they weren’t a priority or had the greatest benefit v cost compared to other things the money could have been used for. Tourists may think they look impressive, but a functioning rebuilt city has much more to offer tourists than this.

Rebecca Moore – I actually think they look great, but hey can’t please everyone – there are negative people out there who will complain about anything. Nicolas Christopher Pegg – Let’s see how they perform in an earthquake and 400 tonnes of steel comes crashing down on State Highway 1 blocking access to the airport. Who paid for this? With all the other urgent infrastructure work that needs doing it staggers me that this frippery got the go ahead. Clearly decision-makers are living in a cosy bubble so far removed from reality they can no longer be trusted to make decisions in the best interests of the community.

The New Brighton Community Fridge and Pantry opened this week, stocked with donated food free to those in need Kat Tuhua – Congratulations New Brighton you guys rock. Hope to see other areas of need using this kind of initiative in the future. Elizabeth Parker – What

a great initiative. There are still good people willing to help others. Well Done New Brighton. Staff at The Prebbleton Cafe were left “shell-shocked” after eggs were stolen from the shop and smashed over vehicles in the car park Nathan Beale – Someone will be crying fowl.

Jonnie F Omen – All these puns you’re all a bunch of eggs.

THE RELEASE of the Ombudsman’s report on the Ministry of Education’s handling of Canterbury school mergers and closures after the February 2011 earthquakes last week reopened old wounds for many in Canterbury. The Chief Ombudsman Judge Peter Boshier described a process with an “atmosphere of mistrust and defensiveness” that we remember only too well. The most alarming part of the report for me is that “student well-being and mental health was not regarded as a persuasive factor” as decisions were made whether or not to close schools. The reality is that seven years on from the quakes, we’re seeing the fallout of the bureaucratic process that was badly bungled by the Government. The Ombudsman notes that “the impact of the trauma caused by the earthquakes and the ensuing social upheaval on young children’s learning and behaviour is becoming more evident as time passes.” I recall the shock and disbelief felt by locals in Hornby and Hillmorton as Branston and Manning Intermediates were closed. People simply

didn’t understand why it was happening. While today we have fantastic new opportunities for children in these communities, this doesn’t excuse the way these communities were dealt to. At the time we argued that decisions around closures and mergers were too soon. It gives me no comfort to now see how we could have benefitted from waiting to see what the shape of our city would be. Many Christchurch schools are already at overcapacity. Rushing the process was a lost opportunity. The report makes the point that the ministry has learned from this experiment. In the wake of the report the bureaucrats have apologised, however, I am a firm believer that the buck stops with those at the top. Senior members of the National Government need to front up to the people of Christchurch and apologise for an appalling process that has left deep scars. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

Students’ ‘open’ attitude sets them in good stead seek are basic team work, problem solving, the ability to plan and prioritise, and the ability to communicate verbally. Hillmorton students being “open” gives them a great platform on which to build those other desirable qualities. I am convinced that our focus on embracing difference and community within our diverse student population ensures that our students are well placed to live and work in a diverse and rapidly changing world. They are set to help “create better futures” for us all.

Performers tackle big issues With a theme “Behind Closed Doors, #ourfight4purpose”, Hillmorton Stage Challenge students chose to explore some hard-hitting social issues about what some people go through “behind closed doors” on a dayto-day basis: family pressures, loneliness, healthy and unhealthy relationships, and alcohol use


Blindside Flanker/Number Eight


Avau Filimaua, Year 9 at Hillmorton, is one of the talented and passionate young rugby players competing in the UC Cup who the University of Canterbury is proud to back. With its partners, the BNZ Crusaders, it is supporting up-and-coming leaders on the field, who also excel in the classroom and contribute to their local community.

Students dig in for the greater good at quarry and/or abuse. Their performance provided solutions by working together and communicating to help each other as a community to overcome these issues and get them out from behind closed doors. Awards of Excellence for Soundtrack, Choreography, Stage Use, Performance Skill and Visual Enhancement were received and the team can be justifiably proud

of their efforts. Equally, our Year 7 and 8 students can be proud of their performances on stage that same night and again, they received a number of awards! Both these events involve large teams of students – performers, back stage team, student leaders and of course staff who work in support. We are really proud of you all!

Composer’s work has first airing

Kurumi Mori is a talented musician and Year 12 international student studying at Hillmorton who is venturing into composition! She has been working on a composition for French horn and piano which recently got its first airing. Mr Antonio Dimitrov, a member of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra and an itinerant brass teacher at HIllmorton, played Kurumi’s piece for the first time rehearsing with Kurumi accompanying him. Mr Dimitrov said the piece was excellent and he was most impressed. It’s not every day that you get to have a professional musician play your composition! Kurumi Mori, right, with brass teacher Antonio Dimitrov.

For the second year running, Year 9 students recently took time out to undertake some social action at Halswell Quarry. Supervised by the park rangers, this year they successfully got more than 400 plants in the ground. The “Big Day Out” – one of our cross-curricular learning episodes in the Middle School (Years 7 – 10) coincides with Arbor Day and Matariki.

GREAT food Y ou r fre s h food pe op le

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... Slow-cooked beef cheek

Mu shu pork

(Serves 4 )

(Serves 4 )


Beef cheeks naturally contain a lot of collagen which, when cooked long and slow, converts into a luscious rich texture. The cheeks will be extra tender and flavoursome if prepared a day in advance and will taste even better. Ingredients 6 cups Beef stock 3 Tbsp Rice bran oil ½ cup Carrot, diced ½ cup Onion, diced ½ cup Celery, diced 3 Garlic cloves, peeled and sliced 1 Tbsp Tomato paste 2 cups Red wine 1 Bay leaf 4 sprigs Fresh thyme 1 sprig Fresh rosemary, small 1.2 kgs Beef cheeks, 1 cheek per serve 1 tsp Salt Directions Heat the oven to 140 deg C. Bring the beef stock to the boil. Heat the oil and fry the

vegetables, garlic and tomato paste for 10 minutes to lightly caramelise. Turn the heat up to high, add the red wine and reduce by half. Season the beef cheeks with salt and pepper then place them in an ovenproof casserole (or use a slow cooker). Add in the reduced wine and vegetables. Add the herbs and cover with beef stock. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook in the oven for 3 hours. To make the glazing sauce,

strain off half the cooking juices into a saucepan, bring this to the boil and reduce until thick and syrupy. To serve, gently reheat the cheeks in the remaining cooking juices. When hot, carefully lift them out and place them into the glazing sauce. Smother with sauce and serve with creamy potato mash and a warm salad of greens (I have steamed brussels sprout leaves, peas, and broad beans, then tossed them with a little olive oil and sea salt flakes).

4 Chinese mushrooms, dried (available from Asian food stores) 5 Tbsp Vegetable oil 300g Baby lettuce leaves, thinly sliced 3 Eggs, lightly beaten with a pinch salt ½ cup Spring onion, sliced, cut on an angle 2 tsp Fresh ginger, cut into matchsticks 200g Chinese greens, cut into 5 cm lenghts 1 Tbsp Hoisin sauce 2 Tbsp Soy sauce 1 to taste Salt 1 Tbsp Rice wine, or sherry Pork seasoning 1 Tbsp Soy sauce 1 tsp Sherry, or rice wine ½ tsp Garlic, crushed 1 tsp Cornflour Directions Soak the mushrooms in warm water for 15 minutes until soft.

Cut away the stalks then thinly slice into strips. Mix all the pork seasoning ingredients together, then stir through the sliced pork. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a wok until it begins to smoke. Add the beaten eggs and slowly stir to scramble. Remove from the wok and reserve. Heat the remaining oil in a wok. Add spring onion and ginger before adding the seasoned pork. Quickly stir-fry for several minutes until the pork is just cooked. Add mushrooms, bamboo shoots and greens. Stir fry for 2 minutes before adding the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine or sherry, and a pinch of salt. Toss well before returning eggs to the wok to reheat. Serve immediately.

Green behind the Gold LUSH: (Anticlockwise from left) Best of All Lookout, rainforest, oysters at Bazaar Restaurant, QT Gold Coast accommodation and antarctic beech trees.

„„ By Mike Yardley BEYOND THE beach of Surfers Paradise, the Gold Coast hinterland abounds with soft adventure pursuits. It’s the green behind the gold, a lush high country wonderland of rainforests, waterfalls and characterful mountain villages. Just 40 minutes from the bikinis and the breakers, I journeyed to the green-drenched embrace of Tamborine Mountain with Scenic Hinterland Day Tours. It’s the most northern section of the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest volcanic caldera, a vast green eroded cauldron sprawling for 40km as far as Byron Bay. Our first stop was Curtis Falls Walk, which like many trails across Tamborine Mountain, is short and stress-free. An unexpected frisson heralded our arrival, as an enormous flooded gum tree cracked and crashed down to the forest floor. The noise was horrific. Drama over, a quick 10 minute stroll through lush rainforest brought us to Curtis Falls, which flows into Cedar Creek. This is a spring fed waterfall, with a Disney-like drop into a rock pool, before tumbling over basalt boulders. We also took in the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk, which is another effortless way to soak up the forest finery. Elevated steel walkways zip you through the upper canopy of the forest, combined with easy trails through the forest floor. The highlight is the 40m long cantilever that juts out and wobbles, 30m above Cedar Creek and the forest. All over Tamborine Mountain nature is locked in a tug of war between the giant flooded gum trees of the Eucalypt forest and the sub-tropical rainforest. Tamborine is home to 6000 residents, the mountain community’s long driveways and grand, stately gates are a recurring theme. There’s some serious wealth up here, with a

glorious lifestyle. The tourist hub of Gallery Walk lures the hordes with its abundance of craft shops, art galleries, superb boutique wineries and eateries. It’s also home to a swag of woo-woo new age healers. Psychic healing, anyone? We also ventured to Springbrook Mountain, the tallest peak in the hinterland, topping out at 1000m. Highlights included in Purling Brook Falls, a staggering spectacle of rainforest, cascading water and canyon-like cliffs, flaunting their volcanic hues.

As the name would suggest, Best of All Lookout is the granddaddy of all views, serving up a sweeping canvas of scenery from Springbrook’s high plateau, reaching across the border into New South Wales and to Mt Warning, which was the core of the ancient volcano. To reach the lookout entails a 10 minute stroll through ancient rainforest, which also boasts the geographical oddity of mighty antarctic beech trees. They are unique to the area, a hangover from Gondwanaland, and these

gnarly giant specimens are 2000-years-old – and still going strong. Enjoy a cool change and magical day of discovery with Scenic Hinterland Day Tours. If boutique-style, affordable luxury is your bag, book a winter escape at QT Gold Coast. With a vintage Holden parked up in the driveway and longboard strapped to on its roof-rack, this opening nod to the seaside-mecca sets the stage for a fun and funky hotel stay. Beating to a distinctive retro

Wonderful winter violas WE’RE ON a colour buzz at the nursery this winter. Last month, I wrote about adding colour to your winter garden with the three Ps – polyanthus, primula and pansy. Now, I’m going to recommend you add even more colour by planting violas. We have several different coloured violas available to order. Two straight colours – apricot and blue. And two mixed bundles of colours – the penny citrus mix, which has yellow, apricot and white flowers. And viola-mixed colours, which includes white, yellow, purple and more. You can order your plants from our recently re-launched online store at Buy online and you’ll also be able to earn loyalty points to put towards free seedling bundles. Next you need to find somewhere to plant. I recommend looking for wide, open spaces. Violas grow really well alongside paving or patios. They also look fantastic in borders around spring bulbs or roses – particularly as the roses go dormant and lose their leaves. And if you’re a hanging basket fan (like I am), use violas to

create a welcoming entrance at your place throughout the cooler months. You can also pop them in a pot – in fact they look great planted around the outside of potted shrubs or citrus trees. Wherever you decide to plant, simply dig in a balanced fertiliser, then plant your seedlings in small holes, about 20cm apart. If growing them in a pot, make sure you use a good potting mix to provide all the nutrients they need. Try not to position any pots under the eaves of your house. Violas like good air circulation and keeping them away from these types of spots will help prevent them getting downy mildew. In about four to six weeks, you should have even more colour in your garden. Remember to pick off the dead heads to encourage them to flower, and you’ll get to enjoy the effect for much, much longer. •Henri Ham, Awapuni Nurseries, www.awapuni.

Plant now for strawberries EVEN THOUGH this winter has been pretty mild so far, it still seems odd to be thinking about such a summery fruit as strawberries just yet. But if you want to enjoy the fruits of your labour at Christmas now is the time to plant strawberries. I love the fact strawberries will grow just about anywhere. Google strawberry planters and you will find an array of creative places for growing this tasty fruit. Cut off drain pipes, wooden pyramids, garden beds, pots, the list goes on. I like to grow strawberries in a raised garden bed. But I’m also a fan of planting them in a paradise planter or hanging basket. As long as they can see the sun, and where you’re planting is well-drained and not prone to frost, you can expect healthygrowing plants that produce lots

of fruit. When you’ve found just the right spot or spots, prepare the soil by digging in a general fertiliser that’s rich in potassium – this will help stimulate plant growth and big, juicy fruit. If you’re planting in a pot or hanging basket, use a good potting mix and for an extra boost apply a liquid fertiliser to the mix. You can order your strawberry plants from www. Each regular-sized bundle has around four plants which should produce between 60-100 strawberries come Christmas. If you’re planting in a paradise planter you’ll need 32 seedlings to fill each hole. Before planting in the garden raise your bed by mounding the soil. This will encourage circulation, drainage and can add depth to shallow soil. Plant your seedlings around

the edges of your garden or pots to encourage the strawberries to hang over the sides and prevent the fruit from touching the ground and rotting. Dig a hole 10cm deep and place the seedling inside. A deep hole is required to give the roots plenty of room to spread out and grow but be careful not to bury the plant. Pack the soil firmly around each seedling and surround with peastraw or newspaper to help keep away weeds. Place netting or wire over you plants when they begin to produce fruit. This will block out birds and ensure you get to eat the strawberries yourself. In spring, add another dose of general fertiliser to your strawberries to encourage sturdier plants that are more disease resistant heading in to the warmer months.

Late bloomer tackles big role „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding TOM TREVELLA was a late bloomer when it came to securing his first professional gig as an artist on stage. Trevella, 46, spent his earlier years travelling the world. It wasn’t until the Lyttelton resident returned to the city in his 30s that he met director/ actor Derek Doddington and his theatre career began to blossom. When Doddington founded Top Dog Theatre in 2003, Trevella was one of the first performers to jump on board by starring in Steven Berkoff’s gritty drama West. It was at Top Dog that Trevella was spotted by The Court Theatre’s artistic director Ross Gumbley, who gave him his first professional role in the original play Happy Coupling in 2006. “During my 20s, I did a lot of travelling and got life experience in a way and was able to bring that into theatre . . . it is not something I had a concentrated effort to do, I just sort of fell into it,” he said. More than a decade on, after establishing himself as a regular in the city’s art scene, he will feature in Top Dog’s latest

CHALLENGE: The cast of Up ‘n’ Under – Tom Trevella as Arthur (back left), Dougal Frame as Tony, Dan Crossen as Frank, Miriam van Voorthuizen as Hazel (front left), Aaron Boyce as Steve/ Reg Welsh and Darren Sundborn as Phil.

comedy Up ‘N’ Under by John Godber. Trevella will play the role of ex-professional rugby league player Arthur who bets his life savings he can train a team to beat the undefeated ‘Wheatsheaf Arms’. He said the show is almost a re-staging of Sylvester Stallone’s movie Rocky – but told through rugby league. Trevella was also one of


the first on the scene when the Loons Theatre Trust, now the Lyttelton Arts Factory, was established in 2007. He still performs with the theatre company. He appeared in its first production of The Butler by Joe Bennett, which ended up touring in Islington, London, for three weeks. Since the February 2011 earthquake, Trevella has

seen great changes in the Lyttelton Arts Factory with the establishment of its new building on 1 Sumner Rd. Trevella is one of a limited number in the city who have managed to make theatre their main profession. “I don’t have an expensive house, dog, car, partner or children . . . those are the sort of things a theatre career can’t support,” he said. When he returned home from his travels, Trevella spent several years working in varied jobs in the city before he got his first professional gig. This included driving trams, working at the Christchurch Art Gallery and selling swimming pool chemicals. Trevella said a highlight of his travels was living in New York city for two years, where he learned he is the smallest of the small, a lesson which gave him the licence to be whoever he wanted to be. •Up ‘N’ Under will run at the Lyttelton Arts Factory from July 12-22. To book tickets, go to http:// up-n-under/

In Brief WOMEN IN THEATRE A social gathering will be held for women in theatre to discuss issues faced within its industry and how they can make a difference together. It will discuss the need for more female directors, writers, performers, producers, board members and back-stage in the city. The gathering is to be held on Sunday, 6.30pm at the Exchange Christchurch – XCHC on 376 Wilsons Rd North. SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD Newly-formed theatre company So Keen Productions will present its first show of the season Songs For A New World by Jason Robert Brown. It will run at The Great Hall: Christchurch Arts Centre, Worcester Boulevard from next Wednesday to Sunday. To book tickets go to https:// SNOW WHITE The Court Theatre will stage Snow White as its latest show for the upcoming school holidays. All kids’ shows are recommended for children aged three to seven. Tickets are $10 for under-18s and $15 for adults. There will be a relaxed performance of Snow White on July 22, 11am.

Regular oil changes important for engine maintenance Tony Wessels and his team of qualified technicians at Diesel Doctor in Addington specialise in servicing all types of latemodel vehicles. However, Tony says that over recent years they have been finding more and more vehicles are not being serviced as regularly as they should be. “Vehicle manufacturers are giving longer service periods, and people don’t understand why they need to have the oil changed regularly,” Tony says. “Changing the oil and filter cleans out impurities before they start doing damage to the engine.” That’s just one of the many reasons why changing your oil regularly is much better for your engine than leaving it too long, and motorists should do so more regularly, in spite of what manufacturers suggest, Tony advises. As he points out: “The oil is really the lifeblood of the engine. “We have been seeing major engine failures because of poor maintenance. The newer engines have a finer tolerance so there is potentially more chance of major damage occurring than with older vehicles.” The cost of changing the oil can be another factor for owners, with manufacturers recommending synthetic oil, which is quite expensive. THUrsdaY 31“In 2013 But as TonyJanUarY points out: some cases,

a good-quality mineral oil may be of more benefit.” To enquire about regular servicing for your diesel or petrol vehicle, contact Tony at Diesel Doctor, phone 338 8884, or call into 288 Lincoln Road, Addington, where there is plenty of off-street parking available.

AUDI S4: The bee’s knees in performance.

some amazing sound. In standard mode the engine is quiet and subdued, as you would expect from the modern V6, but if you select one of the dynamic/ sport engine management protocols, the engine delivers a howl like no other, it’s not a thumping roar that you get from the V8 but instead it is a wail sounding much like a soprano on steroids. There is also a bark out of the exhausts on both up and downshifts. • Price – Audi S4, $116,400 • Dimensions – Length, 4726mm; width, 1842mm; height, 1427mm • Configuration – V6, four-wheel-drive, 2995cc, 260kW, 500Nm, eight-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 4.7sec • Fuel usage – 7.4l/100km

Drive is channelled through an eight-speed automatic transmission which changes ratios quickly and smoothly, power is then channelled to a Quattro four-wheel-drive system. Grip is spectacular, not just the composure it gets in loose surface environments but on the seal, there is a strong feeling of solidity, it feels tied to the road and steers directly. The S4 is not structured with suspension elements too firm for comfort. In fact, I was a little surprised that the ride is biased towards soft yet handling

PLUSH: The S4’s interior is full of technology.

isn’t compromised greatly. There’s a little bit of body movement in a corner, but such is the quality of the fully independent suspension that it transitions through a corner with full balance and composure. I took the test car west through to Terrace Downs, on those lovely long flowing corners it provides a true touring car feel, in the tight stuff it thrills with its steering feel and punch out of a corner, the power and handling are well matched. During the four days with the S4 it constantly surprised, although not so much with its performance, I expected it to be thrilling, and I wasn’t disappointed. However, it also returned respectable fuel usage statistics, the trip computer was constantly listing a 9l/100km (31mpg) average along with a 7l/100km (40mpg) instantaneous figure on a 100km/h open road cruise, the engine turning over slowly at just 1600rpm. These figures sit well with Audi’s combined cycle average claim of 7.4l/100km (38mpg). At $116,400 the S4 doesn’t come at a budget price, but there’s a lot of kit in the car, along with the ingredients which make it angry or subdued, there’s a classy in-cabin environment with all of the gear you’d expect from a premium car. I especially like the display graphics with the sat nav map directly in the driver’s eye-line. There’s also head-up display. Audi is the quiet achiever in the premium market, its product is based on traditional values yet the vehicles have kept pace with modern expectation, and the product line-up is extensive. For a buyer who likes just that little bit of excitement in a purchase, the S4 satisfies with its honesty and perfection.




Audi S4 delivers all the right messages „„ By Ross Kiddie SPORTS SEDANS – I love them. I grew up in an age where strong engines in a sedan body shell were all the rage, and I’ve never lost faith in the concept. Well, as current trends are serving to prove, sedans are hard to sell in an age where sport utility vehicles command market share, but it’s good to know there are still a few high performance four-doors available to satisfy us die-hards. I’ve been lucky in recent months, I’ve driven a lot of premium sedans – Lexus IS200t, BMW 5-series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The latest to come my way was also from Germany, an Audi S4, a car which definitely fits into the sports sedan category. As its badge would suggest, it is a car based on the A4; essentially it is an A4 but for the elements which enhance performance and provide a sportier look. It must be remembered the S4 doesn’t have all the performance potential of its RS4 stablemate, that car is the bee’s knees in terms of outright performance, but the S4 sits snugly in the line-up and is more a gentle performance car, although one which delights in all aspects. Under the bonnet sits a 3-litre V6 engine, it is turbocharged and is rated at 260kW with 500Nm of torque available all of the way from 1370rpm to 4500rpm. The latter figures are responsible for a strong solid surge of boost all through the rev band. The S4 is quick under acceleration, feed some power in from standstill and it will lunge to 100km/h in 4.7sec. It is also capable of a 3.9sec overtaking time (80km/h to 120km/h) and will top end at 250km/h where laws allow. The feel of power and urgency from the quadcamshaft, 32-valve engine is delightful, and can be manufactured to produce

Sport In Brief YOUNG BASKETBALLERS PICKED IN NZ SQUAD Four Canterbury basketballers will represent New Zealand at next month’s under-17 FIBA Oceania Championships in Guam. Tsubasa Nisbet, Burnside High School, Charlotte Whittaker, St Andrew’s College, Amiee Book, Middleton Grange, and Lauryn Hippolite, Middleton Grange, have been named in the 12-strong squad, making Canterbury the most represented region in the country. They will look to finish in the top two to qualify for the FIBA Asia agegroup championships. The team will then have to finish in the top four in that tournament to qualify for the under-19 FIBA World Cup. HAMBLETT BACK TO US Promising footballer Johanna Hamblett, 21, will join Colorado College for the upcoming United States college season after a brief return to Christchurch to play for Cashmere Technical. The midfielder spent last year at Mississippi State University, where she started in 18 games. Before moving to the US, she was part of the Mainland Pride team which won the National Women’s League in 2013 and 2014. Hamblett is expected to debut for Colorado in August.

Teacher, student – teammates Classroom to the football pitch „„ By Gordon Findlater ON MOST days Mikaele Rabuka knows Jacob Allen as Mr Allen – but on Saturday he was his partner in midfield. Rabuka, 15, made his first team debut off the bench during Ferrymead Bays 4-3 penalty shoot-out win over Western in the English Cup semi-final. When the Fijian entered the field with 15min left in normal time, a familiar face welcomed him on the pitch. He slotted in next to Allen in midfield, one of his teachers and football coach at St Thomas’ of Canterbury College. “I was pretty nervous before the game, and to be honest, I didn’t think I would get to play because I started on the bench and we were losing,” said Rabuka. On the eve of the semi-final, Rabuka received a message from Allen asking if he would be keen on a run with the first team. Bays were missing a couple of

CLASSROOM: Jacob Allen (left) and Mikaele Rabuka have gone from teacher and student to Ferrymead Bays teammates. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER regulars, forcing coach Danny Halligan to call up a number of players from the reserve team. Not knowing too much about Rabuka, he called Allen who

had nothing but praise for the teenager. “Our coach Danny said after the game that (Rabuka) was referring to me as Mr Allen

while he was on the bench. I was actually hoping he’d call me sir every time he passed me the ball,” Allen joked. “It was a strange experience at first, but he deserved to be there. He’s a quality young player.” When Rabuka entered the game, Bays trailed 0-2 before two late goals forced the match into extra-time. “He ended up on the wing in extra-time and even managed to make a couple of guys look silly which was great,” said Allen. The game went to penalties, with both teacher and student managing to avoid a walk to the penalty spot. “The coach asked me if I wanted to take one but I wasn’t really keen,” said Rabuka. With some first team regulars expected back this week, Rabuka may not get to play much of a part in Bays’ push for the Mainland Premier League and English Cup titles. At just 15, though, there’s no doubt he can become a regular in time. Rabuka and Allen now turn their attention to the St Thomas team and their bid to push for a play-off spot in the Connetics Premier 1st XI competition and a spot at the national schools tournament in September.

Otago coach mulls over plans for the future „„ By Adrian Seconi OTAGO COACH Cory Brown is back from Georgia with a gold medal and perhaps the ambition to join the Highlanders coaching staff. Brown was defensive coach for the successful New Zealand side which demolished England 6417 in the final of World Rugby’s Under-20 Championship. While he was helping the ‘Baby Blacks’ hone their defen-

sive strategies, there were some changes back home in Dunedin. Highlanders assistant coach Scott McLeod was named as the defence coach for the All Blacks and will leave the Dunedinbased franchise at the end of the season. With Cory’s brother, Highlanders head coach Tony Brown, also leaving the Highlanders at the end of the season, there are vacancies. Aaron Mauger or Mark Ham-

mett will take over as the new head coach, but the team will need a defensive guru. Highlanders scrum coach Clarke Dermody and skills coach Jon Preston are in the mix. But Cory Brown is developing an impressive resume. He was non-committal when asked if he would apply for the role, but does harbour the ambition to coach at the highest level. ‘’We sort of just got back and I haven’t been approached by

them. But I’ll think about it and see if I will put my name in the hat or not.’’ Brown said, as a player, he wanted to get to the highest level and ‘’as a coach I’m exactly the same’’. ‘’Whether I’m ready, I’m not too sure. That is not up to me.’’ Brown’s stint with the New Zealand under-20 side has certainly helped enhanced his reputation and value as a coach. He had the opportunity to

Warriors draw confirmed for final six rounds

THE WARRIORS will host two Friday night NRL games against Penrith and defending premiers Cronulla and meet both Canberra and Manly on Sunday afternoons in their last four regular season home matches. Full details for the final six rounds of the NRL season were released this week, with the Warriors locked in to play at Mt Smart Stadium against the Panthers on July 14 and the Sharks on July 28, the NZ Herald

reported. Stephen Kearney’s side will then play their last two home games against the Raiders on August 13 and Sea Eagles on August 27. In between, the Warriors will head across the Tasman for away games against North Queensland in Townsville on July 22, Newcastle on August 5, and South Sydney on August 18, before a round 26 clash against Wests Tigers at Leichardt Oval on September 3.

The Warriors are now sitting in 10th position – just two points outside the top eight, after grinding their way to a 21-14 win over the Bulldogs in Auckland last Friday. They will look to make it three in a row against Manly at Perth’s Nib Stadium on Saturday, with a second bye round to follow in round 18.

The Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) has announce that Ned Allison from Harcourts Grenadier in Christchurch is the winner of the 2017 REINZ National Real Estate Auctioneering Championships. Mark McGoldrick from Harcourts Canterbury (Ilam) was the runner up in the senior competition. Caleb Griffioen from Harcourt’s Gold Real Estate, Christchurch (Parklands) was runner up of the Rising Stars section. This result comes after two days of intense competition held at Auckland. Bindi Norwell, CEO, REINZ says: “Congratulations to Ned Allison for an outstanding performance. This competition is a tough and challenging one that requires high levels of commitment, training, courage and determination in order to succeed in this field. “This year’s Championships were made even more interesting by the fact that we had no reigning champions entering this year, so the competition was anyone’s to win,” points out Norwell. Mark Sumich, Chief Judge, commented: “The Championships showcase the best auctioneering talent available in New Zealand as our senior callers

are at the coalface of our industry and continue to be the voices most heard on the streets and in the auction rooms around the country. They have developed into internationally acclaimed orators who really are showcasing this time honoured trade with innovation, humour and skill. This years winner and runner up will both represent New Zealand at the Australasian Auctioneering Championships held in Adelaide in September.

Confident at auctions Looking confident may be all you need to be the last bidder standing when the hammer goes down. Does your blood pressure go skyhigh at the sight of an auction room? Chances are some of your fellow bidders are doing all in their power to psych you out and win the bidding. Securing a property isn’t just about having the most money. Sometimes the winning bidder is the one with the most confidence. They use psychology to convince opposing bidders to give up, hoping to make everyone else think they’ve got more to spend than anyone else in the room. Too often buyers have preconceived ideas about how the auction will unfold and have their confidence knocked when it doesn’t go their way. Two can play at that game. You just need to get your strategy right. Looking confident may be all you need to be the last bidder standing when the hammer goes down. To be that person you need to do some preparation. Make sure you go to a few auctions first to get used to them. Come bidding day, park yourself on the side at the front so that you can see everyone in the room and, more importantly, they can see you whether they’re at the back of the front. It gives you a vantage point and shows the opposition you are bidding confidently against them. You are hoping that the other buyers have a plan in place. Often that’s to start low. So if you come in with a relatively high first bid,


3 Bed, 2 Bathroom Double Garage $285,000

you may rattle them. “The lower the open bid the more people can afford to bid. So you could knock out some of the opposition before they even place a bid if you choose the right opener. Don’t start at $500,000 for a house you know is going to go for at least $800,000. Put an opening bid of $785,000. Immediately your opposition is going to think it will go incredibly high and might be unnerved. Call each bid out confidently. “It shows you are comfortable and in control. The more confident you seem the more people will think you have done it before. It’s a really good idea to vary your bidding increments.. If it’s going up by $2000 bids and it’s below your limit don’t be afraid to put a $10,000 bid in.. Your competition is always thinking about that next $2000 bid and if you change the rhythm from $2000 to $10,000 you show you have the money and it changes where their next bid has to be. Instead of $4000 more it is $12,000 more. Finally, if you’re a couple, make sure you’ve discussed every aspect of the auction before you get there. As soon as you start looking at each other or conferring, the opposition will think you’re weak.

The responsibilities of tree owners and Orion under the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 Orion New Zealand owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers and from the Canterbury coast to Arthur’s Pass. Trees touching power lines account for 10-20% of all unplanned power outages on our network. If you see a tree touching a power line, or any other hazardous tree condition, please contact us immediately on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Orion’s tree management programme

This advertisement provides a general notice of the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 and the dangers of trees near power lines. More detail on these issues can be found on our website or by phoning us on 03 363 9898.

We currently undertake periodic cutting or trimming of vegetation within the notice zone. The intent of this cutting or trimming is to support safety and reduce the risk of power outages. This periodic cutting or trimming by us does not remove the tree owner’s responsibilities and in the case of fast growing species may not be sufficient to ensure that trees remain outside of the growth limit zone. You will be notified prior to any periodic trimming being carried out and the work will be completed by arborists carrying Orion identification.

The Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

The regulations set out the responsibilities of electricity line companies and tree owners. The purpose of the regulations is to protect the safety of the public and help to ensure a secure supply of electricity. The regulations: • define safe separation distances between trees and power lines • specifies who is responsible for ensuring clearances are maintained • places potential liability on the tree owner if any damage or accident occurs due to trees touching power lines. (Note that the word “trees” includes all types of vegetation, including shrubs, hedges and climbing vines.)

What are the dangers?

Trees near power lines need to be trimmed or removed for the following reasons: • children like to climb trees and when trees are close to power lines there is a risk of serious injury or death • in severe weather conditions, vegetation can become electrically “live” and may electrocute anyone or anything that touches it • while a tree may not touch a power line in fine weather, branches can bend or break in wind or snow storms, causing serious damage and possibly prolonged power outages • in dry conditions, electrical sparking caused by branches or windblown debris on lines may cause fires.

Orion’s tree management programme is largely governed by the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003. Our programme involves education, monitoring and the cut/trim or removal of trees that threaten to come into contact with power lines. Through this programme we work with tree owners to minimise the risk of their trees touching power lines.

If Orion becomes aware of a tree which is within the ‘Notice zone’ (see Tree “A” in the diagram below) then we are required to issue the tree owner with a Hazard Warning notice. For trees within the ‘Growth limit zone’ (see Tree “B” in the diagram below) we are required to issue the tree owner with a Cut or Trim notice.

What is a hazard warning notice?

If a tree is within the “Notice zone” (see Tree “A” in the diagram), we are required to issue a hazard warning notice to the tree owner.

Notice zone

Minimum distances required between trees and power lines

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees and power lines, defined in the regulations, are outlined in the diagram to the right. A common sense approach, by tree owners trimming trees early, will generally prevent trees touching power lines.

Growth limit zone

Tree “A”

To maintain a safe distance from power lines some trees require cutting or trimming more frequently than other trees, but if it is determined that cutting or trimming cannot satisfactorily meet the requirement then removing the tree is recommended. Other situations may require trees to be felled because they are at a distance that is considered to be a hazard due to falling during storms or being diseased.

Tree “B”

Power line

Notice zone

Growth limit zone

1.6 metres

400V/230V (low voltage)

0.5 metres


V = Volts; kV = kilo Volts ie 1,000 Volts

1) These distances are from the power line, not the power pole 2) These distances are a minimum and apply in all conditions including high wind or snow 3) In most instances the power lines that go to a house or building are low voltage power lines. Power lines that go down a street may be low or high voltage.

A hazard warning notice alerts the tree owner that the tree has encroached the notice zone and that if it encroaches the “Growth limit zone” (see Tree “B” in the diagram) a cut or trim notice may be immediately given to the tree owner (see above).

Trimming trees near power lines

Trimming trees near power lines can be extremely hazardous and the dangers should not be underestimated. Contact with a power line can cause: • • • • • •

injury or death to yourself, family or passers by injury or death to livestock damage to property and other trees damage to electrical appliances damage to power supply facilities damage to third parties.

We recognise that the public is not always experienced in tree trimming, so we are happy to advise you on this. We can arrange for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your cost. If, however, you prefer to arrange your own tree trimming, we recommend you hire professionals with the necessary expertise and safety procedures to competently carry out this work. If you or someone working for you intends to work within 4 metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from Orion before you start. As a tree owner you may be liable for any damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

The growth limit zone is the area around a power line which trees must not encroach even in windy or snow conditions. The notice zone is a distance one metre beyond the growth limit zone.

What is a cut or trim notice?

If we become aware that a tree has encroached on the “Growth limit zone”, we will give notice in writing to the tree owner that the tree must be cut or timed to maintain the distances prescribed in the regulations, and the timeframes for action. If no action is taken Orion may then trim the tree and seek to recover costs.

Who pays for the cut or trim?

Orion is responsible for the first cut of trees near power lines, where the first cut is on a property basis, not owner basis. We have already met this obligation by completing a first cut of vegetation on all our lines. The tree owner will need to organise and pay for any subsequent and future cuts or trims. We are happy to provide tree owners with a list of approved arborists who can carry out this work, and also advise the best solution given the circumstances.

What fines can be imposed?

A tree owner commits an offence where a cut or trim notice is given, and without reasonable excuse, the tree owner fails to have the tree cut or trimmed and/or fails to advise us of the time and location of the cut or trim. A person who commits such an offence is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues, that person is also liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every day or part day during which the offence continues.

Contact us if in any doubt about your tree


Please contact us or an approved Orion tree trimming contractor to help with your trees, or to discuss your options.

We aim to work with tree owners to ensure safety is maintained and power outages are minimised. We will actively work with tree owners to see trees are trimmed or cut before regulatory powers are applied. However, as we wish to ensure the safety and security of the public, we will use the regulations where necessary.

Orion New Zealand Limited owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers.
